Good morning everyone! Here is today's Daily Briefing.
In national news, negotiations between Democrats and Republicans have yielded little progress. Moody's has suggested that, to avoid future crises, the US eliminate the debt ceiling altogether. President Obama will nominate Richard Cordray, former Attorney General of Ohio, to head the new Consumer Protection Bureau.
That's actually it for today - slow news day on Monday, as usual. Anyway, have a great day, and we'll be back later.
